Fairdale Express 2022



the Express is a fast machine for urban riding, commuting and fun. A key feature on this bike is its riding position. Low-rise mountain bike style handlebars put you into a commanding and stable riding position for zipping through busy areas
features like wide Continental tires, a simple single-speed drivetrain and a tough steel frame mean this bike will be a joy to ride for years. Feel free to configure your Express with a wide array of aftermarket racks and fenders, thanks to the standard rack mounting points on the frame and fork
Don’t overthink or over-complicate the bicycle, just hop on an Express and ride
